BookReviews working women needed to be protected from vice rather than being vilified as a threat to soldiers' sexual health. Author Claire Nee Nelson focuses on an individual activist, Louise Thompson Patterson, whose radical politics have been attributed her involvement in the Harlem Renaissance and black communist groups in New York City. Nelson effectively argues that Patterson already had been radicalized by her experiences teaching in the segregated South before she arrived in New York. The volume's final essay asks historians to rethink their approach to studying the civil rights movement. Using emotionally powerful examples of female activism in southwest Georgia, Alisa Y. Harrison makes a case for greater attention to ordinary people and ordinary lives. This volume is a worthy addition to a series that showcases new talent and new perspectives, and it would be especially appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in Southern U.S. and women's history, as well as race and gender studies.
